HOPS NOT FOR SALE
Bulk of Coast Supply Is Off of
REPORTED TO BE TIED UP
Of 14,000 Bales Remaining, 10,000
Bales Cannot Be Touched by
Buyers Crop Conditions at
Home and Abroad.
Of the 14,000 bales of hops of the 1913
crop remaining; on the Pacific Coast, 10,000
bales, it Is said, have been withdrawn from
the market, or at least so tied up that they
are not available. This quantity includes
practically all the best lots left on the
Coast. In Oregon about 6000 bales remain
unsold,- and it is believed that of these, all
but 1000 bales have been turned over to
the control of one firm. The so-called-Wolf
pool In California consists of 5000 bales of
the 8000 bales that remain in the state.
Should the Eastern or foreign brewers or
dealers find it necessary to replenish their
stocks or fill deferred wants, they would
find a very small stock to select from in ,
the West, in the evnt that the bulk of the I
supply has been securely tied up. It Is
bard to buy now, and In fact for some time
past the market has been almost blocked.
There are several orders on hand for spots,
but dealers cannot fill them.
The contract market is firm. Fifteen
cents is being; freely offered In this state
and In Washington, and California wires
received yesterday said the same price was
bid for new Sonomas.
Hop crop conditions in Oregon continue
generally favorable, though growers would
like to see warmer weather. The same ap
' piles to the Washington crop. California
reports are good except from the Sonoma
section, where the yield is certain to be
light. That the lice attack in English hop
yards is not a light one is shown by the
following plantation reports In the Kentish
Observer of June 21:
Ash -Next -Sandwich. The cold snap of
the last few days has been the means of
keeping the lice from breeding so rapidly
as they would have done bad the tempera
ture been higher and the weather more
genial. The outlook differs only In a minor
degree from the position this time last
year. The small leaves are swarming with
fat breeding lice, waiting opportunity. The
growth of the bine has been slow and the
color is too naie. Fresn relays of fly dally
and washing going on everywhere.
Betnersden. The hops .hare not done at
all well during the past week, and a fresh
accession of fly set growers washing again
on Tuesday and yesterday. The bine is very
backward and sickly.
Canterbury district. The bine makes fair
progress, but. the temperature is much too
low for hops, and. lice and nits are too
plentiful, rendering washing necessary.
, Showers at the week-end freshened up the
plants, : which are keeping a good color ex
cept in "grounds that are not liberally treat
ed, where it is looking rather yellow.
Dunkirk. The bine Is looking very well
and very even and cultivation is pretty good,
although rather rough in places.
Ed ea bridge. The nights are much too
cold for the bln to grow well. Washing
Is general, as the heads are smothered with
- Maidstone district. The condition of the
bine In the grounds around Maidstone is
very promising. The recent rain has proved
beneficial, and if the temperature would
only become warmer there would be nothing
to complain about as .regards the general
prospect.. Although . there is a lot of ver-
- mln In all grounds, it is being well kepi
-under by washing, which Is now quite gen
t' Sittlngbourne district. There was -heavy
rain J a this district on Sunday and as a re
suit the bfne has grown fast and is looking
fresh and vigorous.- Fly and lice are on the
Increase, and a good deal of washing Is be
Tenterden (Weald). In the best grounds
growth has been well maintained in spite
.of the cool weather, but the bine on the
- whole. Is still backward -and vermin is much
too prevalent for growers to be happy.
Ton bridge district (Weald). The absence
for some weeks of heavy rain Is beginning
to tell on the plants In this district,
now we have a pretty general attack of
fly, which means washing.
onions are looked for soon,
was in fair supply.
Eggs Higher on Alaska Baying.
; There were several good sized orders on
the egg market for supplies to ship on the
Alaska steamer, and sales were made at 3
cents, case count.
The poultry market was firm with 14
cents and occasionally a fraction more paid
for hens. Dressed meats were also firm.
No changes were reported in the butter or

HARVEST BEGINS IX CENTRAL OREGON
Weather Conditions How Satisfactory- for
' .Fruit Crops.
The weekly summary of weather and
crop conditions in Oregon, as Issued by the
local weather .bureau, follows:
"The week was generally fair; the first
part unusually warm and the last part
cooler with moderate rains in northwestern
"All crops made satisfactory growth.
Cherries In Rosue River Valley are nearlj
harvested; peaches in that section are doing
well and will harvest about 50 per cent of a
normal crop, while apples, and pears will
give nearly a normal crop. In the lower
Willamette Valley the hot weather the fore
part of the week injured some loganber
ries and strawberries, and the cold and
damp weather the last of the week pre
vented the gathering of the hay crop. A
heavy fall of hall occurred Saturday after
noon In this valley, but no serious damage
has been reported.
"Harvesting has begun in Deschutea Val
ley. Hay is nearly all in shock. Barley is
liAlna- our a rwl t Via Klnrlln rtP whar will hA
. gin this week under normal weather con
d it ions. It is expected that there will be
a good yield, generally, of grains and
grasses. Rain Is needed for Spring-sown
. grains in lower Deschutes Valley. Pastur
age continues in good condition. . In most
sections there is plenty of moisture In the
soil for present needs."

Breaks at Chicago Bring About Selling
v Pressure in Northwest.
The repeated slumps in the Chicago
wheat market have brought about some
pressure to sell the new crop on the part
of farmers in the Northwest. Buyers ap
paren tly were not keen to take bold yes
terday, although a limited quantity of new
club was secured at 78 cents. A purchase
of 10.000 sacks of new bluestem on the
Coast basis of S3 cents was reported. The
